Various strategies can be used to engage students in the writing process, including questioning to activate students’ prior knowledge and higher-order thinking. Engaging students in taking ownership of their writing requires a great deal of creativity to involve students in the writing process.
Part 1: Writing Lesson Plan
Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template” and “Class Profile,” design a standard-based lesson plan, that includes a writing activity.
In preparing the lesson plan, include the following:
- Questioning strategies that activates student’s prior knowledge and higher-order thinking in writing and engages them in the learning process
- Strategies to creatively engage students with various forms of writing, the writing process, and to expand students communication
Part 2: Reflection
In 250-500 words, rationalize your instructional choices specific to the activity and aligning strategies. Be sure to address how your completed lesson plan is appropriate to meet the diverse needs of the “Class Profile” students and clearly focuses on creativity and student engagement.
Support your reflection with at least two scholarly resources.
